Kenyan Telcos to Share Infrastructure Built Using USF Under New Law

The  Parliamentary Committee on Communication, information, and Innovation has tabled a report in the house which proposes that all telecommunication providers in Kenya will share infrastructure built using the Universal Service Fund.

The Committee wants the Communication Authority to use the USF fund to build a new base Transreceiver Stations accessible to network operators in Isiolo, Garissa, Mandera, Marsabit, Samburu, Turkana and Wajir.

The USF is financed by mandatory contributions from licensed telco operators which provide services in the various communications market segments.

The fund was meant to help with network deployment and service provision in rural, outlying and economically unattractive areas, where telcos may find it difficult to invest.
